You can use any word object and equate a plus or minus addition (see: value theory).
Whether you're rationing "happiness" or "value" metrics, the math is the same, yet different for each individual set, 1-6 removed. The key is, like categorical imperative, you are constantly applying a sliding scale of modular value sets.
Consider Vector Tensor Theory: the conservation of angular momentum containing Value Set A (past tense), bridging the ethical gap to B (present tense), and the potential trajectories toward C (future tense), forms the Human Set that is then rationed to equally removed gaps (like environmental conditions that, layer upon layer, affect the hardware/software Human Set - again, a 1-6 ratio in flux: Heraclitus).
The Golden Proportion is at the heart of it all (or, if you like Chakra categoricals, the Solar Plexus is the center of the modular, scalar universe).
